Blinded By Colors This book is about a story of kindness, conflict, and racism. It takes place in Mayfield, South Carolina. A young girl named Lynn finally finds a true friend. The problem is he’s white. His father forbids him to see Lynn because he doesn’t believe in a friendship like that. Back then they still separated blacks from whites at times. That’s why they say blinded by colors. When Lynn and other black folks show kindness to their neighbors, they are helping uncover the blindness. I was so overwhelmed when I finished this book. Not only because my favorite teacher wrote it, but because it’s over. Now not only do I have black friends, but white ones too. I don’t care what anyone says they’ll be my friends until the end!
